Help on Timelines
View as List
Timelines show in graphical form the number of words first recorded by the OED within different time periods.
The Subject, Region, and Origin menus can be used to display timelines for different categories and subcategories. Select the All tab to reset the timeline.
The width of each bar represents a period of 50 years by default, but periods of 10 and 100 years can also be chosen. The height of a bar indicates the number of words first recorded in that period.
Hover over a bar to view a selection of the words it contains. Click on a bar to view the complete set of words.
